Apply for a short-term experience

So you've decided you want to apply for a short-term study experience!

Before you start the application, it is important to review the following information to help you understand how a global study experience can connect to your studies, what your best experience options may be, and how to prepare an application!

3. Submit your online application to UQ

Make sure you submit your online application to Internships and Global Experiences by the appropriate deadline.

When submitting your application, you must:

  1. Agree to UQ's Global Experiences Terms and Conditions when you submit your application.
  2. Provide all supporting documents

Once your application has been submitted, IGET will respond within 10 business days of application submission. If you are missing any documents, we will contact you.

Please note: Credit assessments can take 4-6 weeks. Apply to UQ early to ensure credit approval before you apply to the host program provider. 

IGET does not recommend making any financial commitments to your host or toward your experience until after your application is approved by IGET and your credit is approved by Faculty.
